People of all ages were bundled up Saturday morning in Harrison County to walk for the American Heart Association's Heart Walk.

The main goal of this event was to raise money for research and education. Cardiovascular disease and stroked are the #1 and #4 killers of all Americans. The American Heart Association's goal is for people to live healthier lives, free of these tragedies. Organizers said that heart disease can be prevented and the public needs to be educated on how. There were three main booths in Bridgeport City Park for people to learn about their heart, their life, and their community.

"Beyond just having people write checks, we try to get people to come out  and put a little fun into it. Get some attention so that people hopefully will write more checks next year. There's a lot of booths here, a lot of educational material, and some fun things for the kids," said Bruce Carter. UHC President.
